Revd Dr Clifford Hill on Brexit: great shaking yet a door of hope

I’m particularly drawn to Dr Hill’s reminder of the Shaking of Nations prophesied in 1986 (unknown to me but Hebrews 12:27 was opened to me 10 years later) in his editorial to Prophecy Today UK, and grateful for ongoing permission to republish. Here’s Dr Hill on the causes of the current crisis:

A DOOR OF HOPE

What next for beleaguered Britain?

So Boris has got a deal! But the big question facing Christians in Britain is this – what is God saying to us? Is the hand of God inexorably guiding the nation towards a no deal outcome? Amazingly, Prime Minister Johnson has secured a deal with the EU which everyone said was impossible. But so did Mrs May last year! And her deal was firmly rejected by Parliament. Surely, Boris must know that whatever he presents to our rebellious Parliament on ‘Super-Saturday’ will have very little chance of being given the approval of the majority of our MPs. Even if the Archangel Gabriel appeared with a divinely approved deal, written in Heaven, it would be thrown out by this Parliament!

Having written that, I am well aware that I may have to eat my own words if something amazing happens and the new deal is overwhelmingly approved by Parliament. If that does happen, I would seriously question the value of the deal, as I have no confidence that this Parliament will do anything righteous, or that anything agreed with the European Union will be in the best interests of Britain.

I firmly believe that leaving with no deal is far better than leaving with a bad deal that keeps us partially tied to the EU. We need a clean break so that we have the opportunity to recalibrate all our relationships with God and with others.

A vision of radical changes within Parliament

Thank you to Matthew Holman (HearYourWayBristol) for kindly permitting publication of what he posted today in Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival (Facebook group). As with all words and visions, it’s for your weighing with the Lord and scripture:

‘I had a vision of the Houses of Parliament. A bell was being rung from inside and it made everyone stop and pay attention – like a fire alarm but a traditional hand rung bell mounted on the wall. People were coming from all over to gather around Parliament. Even the Thames stopped flowing!

‘Then as the bell was still ringing, and the sound was reverberating the whole inside of the buildings, a tannoy-style speaker appeared from the clouds and God was speaking over Parliament (and therefore the nation) and all who had gathered could hear His voice.

‘I then heard the words “Even the stones shall cry out” and I saw in the spirit the very stones of the building proclaiming God’s truths [Footnote refers: RB]. But also I saw that they knew everything historic that had taken place in the buildings of Parliament – seen and unseen, and that their knowledge was released. I then got the scripture within Luke 19 (vv 39-40):

And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.”  He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”

‘From this I saw the voices – of those who know who they are in Christ – rising up. They walked into the chambers and began to worship, whilst those who had their own agendas and love of money were kept in the hallways shut behind the big doors.

‘I then had the scripture: “And the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous”. I saw vast sums of money and gold laid on the central table (like an altar) and the fire of heaven came down and melted and refined the money and gold. As it was purified and turned liquid it went out into the nation like veins – like a golden river. It stretched to all parts of the UK. And also went into the walls of Parliament as like a declaration of re-purpose.

‘At this time I saw a hit in the stock market – that God was showing his authority over money and that money is a mere tool for the advancement of his Kingdom and for the equipping of saints. I then heard the words, “What would those who rely on money rely on when there is none?” I felt an invitation into God’s love for those who don’t know what it is to rely on God as a good Father. I saw the power of the love of money being broken.

‘Then as the golden river was flowing out there was an earthquake in the nation that shook ALL foundations. The ground began to split open and those foundations were revealed. I then heard the words “We will build on ancient foundations” I saw pillars being revealed from under the earth.

‘I saw those things that had been built on false foundations collapse into the voids – churches included. I saw those who had built already on ancient foundations stood strong! I then felt like the reaction to this would be for those on the strong foundations to say to those in the void “I told you so”, but I then saw this turn into an invitation once again. I saw people reaching their hands into the void to help people up onto their foundations and as they did, instead of saying “I told you so”, they were saying “God loves you so” – God was inviting people to join in the land that they did not labour for. I saw a rich blessing fall over the nation when those in Christ and who have built on ancient foundations of God’s truths reached out in love to those who had fallen into the voids.

‘The whole vision felt like a re-calibration. That the shaking and the fall of the power of money is just an invitation to come into love. To be part of the Gospel. To know worth, identity and destiny. I saw a national revival break out as peoples’ priorities changed and their love of money broke and they saw what it is to rely fully on God. We have an invitation to rebuild like never before. I feel that Christian voices will be risen up in parliament and that people will know the fear of the Lord in that place. I see huge resources for the sectors that work with the most vulnerable and those on the fringes and unseen.

‘We must pray and ask God for his perspective. That chaos is only chaos when we focus on the situation rather than God’s voice. That his voice brings everything to heavenly order.

‘Will you have your ear to the ground to hear it coming? Listen out for the bell ringing in Parliament.

‘I heard Father give this scripture as a summary: Matthew 6: 19-33

‘Blessings x’

Fulfilled Prophecy #13:16 – stark warning of Eurozone’s shaking

My previous musing that any fall of the EU (as David Noakes prophesied in November 2015) may coincide with, or even precede, Britain’s eventual departure from the EU. I wouldn’t be surprised if, as with ancient Egypt when calamitous events were necessary in order to make Pharaoh release the Hebrew slaves, then similar would be required to make Brussels “let our people go”!

Hence, my monitoring the progress in signs of that modern prophecy’s fulfillment.

Today, in Brussels calls for government stimulus to avert recession in eurozone as shocks mount, Ambrose-Evans Pritchard writes (my emphases),

‘The European Commission has issued a stark warning to EU finance ministers, calling for concerted fiscal stimulus to head off a recession and avert a protracted downturn before it is too late.

‘A briefing document for tomorrow’s Eurogroup meeting said the twin shocks of a no-deal Brexit and US car tariffs of 25pc days later risks compounding the current global trade slump and could test the limits of eurozone policy…’

The  business editor continues,

‘The EU authorities in Brussels have been slow to grasp the magnitude of the global economic downturn – erroneously counting on a swift rebound by China and emerging markets – but the blizzard of grim data from Germany and the deepening industrial recession has finally set off alarm bells

‘It is clear that dissenting opinion is at last making itself heard in Brussels. A joint statement by 23 automotive groups across Europe last month warned that a no-deal would shatter just-in-time supply chains and amount to a “devastating” and “seismic” blow to the car industry at a time when auto companies are already facing an existential crisis. “Brexit is not just a British problem, we are all concerned,” said the statement.

After looking at the European Central Bank’s (ECB) state-of-play, Ambrose concludes:

Impasse

‘Whatever the theoretical arguments, the ECB has reached a political dead end. Nine council members from countries making up over half Euroland GDP have attacked the latest package. “This loose money policy leads to less growth and lower productivity,” said Austria’s central bank governor Robert Holzmann.

The eurozone has reached an impasse. Monetary policy is exhausted and fiscal stimulus – beyond tinkering – is constrained by a tangle of rules and laws, so complex that the Commission has to provide a guide book to frustrated officials in national capitals. Now the currency bloc faces a barrage of recessionary shocks

‘This concentrates the mind. EU leaders must decide over coming days whether to engage seriously with Boris Johnson on his Brexit plan or whether to gamble on the Benn Act, an Article 50 extension, and a fresh referendum.

If they get it wrong and instead precipitate a no-deal, the economic chain reaction could spin out of control for them as well as for Britain. It is high-octane brinkmanship.’

‘Bulldozer’ Boris sees Brussels’ ‘Boss’ blink over the Backstop – is prophecy being fulfilled? (NI-Eire Prophecy Update #19)

Once again Wednesday night’s news is directly related to prophecy! (Like last week when the Lord dropped 4 political press reports into my lap and I recalled SIX directly related prophetical words)

On the surface, it appears Ireland’s Taoiseach, or Prime Minister, Leo Varadkar may not have stepped into his destiny of bringing a satisfactory solution to the stumbling block over Brexit – the infamous ‘Backstop’.

But a few days before last Christmas we looked in some depth at his claim, “We’re not preparing for a hard border between NI and Ireland in the event of a no deal.” (Prophecy Progress Check #1)

However, he since changed his tune, indubitably because Juncker stuck his Tusk into him during his visit to Dublin (in which the President of European Council cursed those Britons who desired to cut EU’s apron-strings completely, as herein).

But of course we’re not privy to the recent discussions Leo’s had with our new PM, yet now their and his ‘boss’ is happy to reconsider the backstop, then Leo is now free to get on with what the Lord would have him do, according to the prophetic word reiterated below.

Yesterday, Angela Merkel (effectively Brussels’ boss) suggested she may be willing to ditch the controversial backstop if the UK can agree a suitable alternative by 20th Sept, to which Boris Johnson said he’s “more than happy” with the suggestion, saying Brexit talks “can finally begin”.

The Telegraph reports:

‘Speaking at a press conference in Berlin Mrs Merkel said the backstop had always been a “fallback position” and would only come into effect if no other solution could be agreed that would protect the “integrity of the single market”.The German Chancellor said:

“If one is able to solve this conundrum, if one finds this solution, we said we would probably find it in the next two years to come but we can also maybe find it in the next 30 days to come. Then we are one step further in the right direction and we have to obviously put our all into this.”

‘Ms Merkel said she expected the UK to present its ideas for a new Brexit deal. “Britain should tell us what sort of ideas it has because it is not the core task of a German chancellor to understand the relationship between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland so well,” she said. “As you will know much better about all the ramifications of the Good Friday Agreement. We would like to hear first proposals put on the table by Britain. We have shown imagination and creativity in the past as the EU, I think here too we can find ways and means.”

NB. This year the EU recognised technology that makes the Backstop unnecessary!! (See most informative letter to The Telegraph in Footnote.)

THE PROPHECY

Now, review the pertinent parts of the prophetic word brought by Emma Stark on 27th February on the solution to the Brexit backstop and Ireland issues (read full transcript). It starts with the Lord talking about Leo Varadkar’s character and his developing a new relationship with Ulster’s leader Arlene Foster (see earlier Updates). Emma continues:

‘And I heard the Lord say, “They will be in a coalition.” I am not talking politically. I am not talking about divided Ireland. I am not talking about united Ireland. Don’t hear this through any agenda or political mindset. I heard the word “coalition” in terms of a new relationship, a new ability to see and understand each other, a new ability to figure some things out between each other. And I heard the Lord say this – it was so clear – He said, “Brexit is out of Time”. I don’t mean like it’s running out, because we know it’s running out in terms of the end of March – but it is “out of Time” of the order of God. And the Lord says, “Do not fear, even if there is a delay. Do not fear, if that looks like increased chaos.” For the Lord says, “There is an order, and I will start in Ireland,” And they will form such a new understanding, and a new relationship with one another, that the Lord says, “It will be a model for what I want to do in nations and how they will relate to each other, even across the continent of Europe and beyond.” But the Lord says, “I am beginning a work of reconciliation and seeing each other and solution in Ireland.”

‘And the Lord says, “That is going to even have an effect on Brexit.” The Lord says, “Let Ireland be solved first before Brexit can be unpacked and fully realised.” And you can see God working in an order around the nation, from Ireland in the south, up to Northern Ireland and across, down into Westminster. And the Lord is saying in this hour that we are to pray, even for the EU and even for Theresa May and Westminster, to give Ireland space and to not dominate in that place so that the Lord can raise up these leaders to see each other. And the Lord said this: “Oh intercessors, you have prayed about the Irish border, you have gone back and forward along it.” And the Lord says, “You have bound every demon that you knew how to bind, and you have been diligent and faithful.” But the Lord is even saying now, “You did not replace that which you bound with the solution from my throne room.” The Lord says, “It is a time for the intercessors to start to say over the Irish border, ‘God has a solution’, and to release the solution; not just to bind and limit that which is nasty, but to put a higher decree in place, an overarching decree that says, ‘There will be a relational solution’.” And the Lord says, “I need your decrees and your agreement that MY relational order will come even into that landmass”, says the Lord.

In respect of the announced changes, we should review what Emma also said by way of updating earlier words on Brexit:

‘The Lord also said this to me, that there had been a robbing of the DNA of the British Isles, and that the British Isles for centuries had been known for leadership in the earth. And yes, sometimes they got that just disgustingly wrong, and sometimes there was weeping for the need for repentance. But the Lord says, “In the middle of all of that, you forgot”, says the Lord to the British Isles, “that in your very core, in your very DNA, there was the ability to make a leadership role in the nations.” And Lord is saying that the nations are crying again for the British Isles to raise themselves up, and to know what leadership is. And the Lord says, “I am healing and restoring leaders, the length and breadth of the British Isles, in this hour.” And the Lord says, “If you want to know how to pray, you pray for Leo Varadkar in Dublin, you pray for Arlene Foster in Belfast.” And the Lord says, “There is going to come such a fresh template of how leaders across borders work with each other that it will heal the backstop, it will heal Ireland, it will propel Brexit to come forth in the right way. It will model a new way of relationship for the landmass of Europe.” And the Lord says, “It will enable even revival to come, as there is a domino effect from Ireland.” And so the Lord is saying, “Take hope. I am on My throne. I know what I am doing, but I need your agreement,” says God.  [That is, agreement per Amos 3:7 – emphases mine, RB]

Footnote – Letter to the Editor, published 21st August:

From Myles Power
Former EU Policy Adviser on Transport, Constitutional Affairs and Legal Affairs

‘SIR, There is no need for the Irish backstop in the Withdrawal Agreement, as I explained in a paper for the Centre for Welsh Studies.

‘In March, the European Parliament passed the “electronic freight transport information regulation”. This basically does away with need for border controls on freight throughout the EU. While the final text does not specifically mention a third country (as the UK, including Northern Ireland, will become on October 31), there is no reason why the European Commission cannot utilise the facility in the regulation.

‘Sabine Weyand (the deputy EU Brexit negotiator) said in an interview with Politico that no technology is available for the cross-border electronic identification of freight. If there is no technology available, why did the EU put in place a regulation for exactly that?

‘So, in my opinion, the backstop can be removed and the United Kingdom can depart on October 31 with an agreement in place that will not leave one part of the country annexed to the EU.’

Fulfilled Prophecy #13.15 – Germany and the Eurozone ARE shaking!

Following on from Simon Braker’s dream of European nations being bricks in a game of jenga, with reference to Britain being warned to “Come out!” (Fulfilled Prophecy #13.1), within days of Germany’s Angela Merkel having a 3rd bout of ‘prophetical’ shaking when meeting Finland’s PM, Veronika West heard the following (Facebook):

AN URGENT WORD FOR THE NATION OF GERMANY…!

EARLY HOURS OF THIS MORNING THE SPIRIT OF GOD WOKE ME TO PRAY FOR THE NATION OF GERMANY AND FOR THE GREAT SHAKING THAT IS COMING!!!

As I began to pray I saw the Chancellor Angela Merkel and I heard the Spirit say, “SHAKING, SHAKING, SHAKING, FOR THIS IS A SIGN OF THE SHAKING THAT IS COMING TO THIS NATION, WATCH! FOR I AM SHAKING THE GOVERNMENT, I AM SHAKING THE ECONOMY AND I AM SHAKING MY CHURCH IN THE NATION OF GERMANY, WATCH! FOR GERMANY WILL BE SHAKEN AND IT WILL BE SHIFTED IN THIS NEXT SEASON, MY SHAKING SHALL HUMBLE THE PROUD AND BRING DOWN THOSE WHO ARE STIFF-NECKED, WATCH AND PRAY! FOR GERMANY SHALL BE SHAKEN 3 TIMES, YES! 3 TIMES,!! FOR I SHALL SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE THIS LAND, PRAY MY SHAKING SHALL REVERBERATE THROUGHOUT THE NATIONS OF EUROPE, WATCH THE UNITED NATIONS, WATCH THE EUROPEAN UNION, GERMANY WILL BE SHAKEN TO ITS FOUNDATIONS, says the Spirit of God.

“BERLIN, UKRAINE AND FINLAND WILL SHAKE…!

As I cried out to God for Mercy He said, “WATCH BERLIN, WATCH FINLAND, WATCH UKRAINE, WATCH FOR A SHAKING SHALL COME TO THESE NATIONS IN THE DAYS AHEAD.” As I heard those words I saw the Nation of FINLAND BEING SHAKEN, THE NATION OF UKRAINE and then I saw a shaking in BERLIN…! WATCH AND PRAY…!

EUROPEAN & GLOBAL SHAKING – THE FINER DETAIL

AND today, over three weeks later, comes news that, ‘Recession fears returned to stalk global markets once more yesterday after Germany suffered its biggest factory slump in a decade and a wave of central bank stimulus stoked fears of a race to the bottom in a brewing currency war…(AND) Fears of a brewing currency war escalated after New Zealand’s central bank slashed interest rates to a record low of 1pc…(NZ’s) deeper-than-expected cut knocked its currency more than 2pc against the US dollar to its lowest level in more than three years and dragged Australia’s currency briefly down to a 10-year low. The move was “a further sign that central banks seem fixed on a race to the bottom” as tensions over weakening currencies surge…’ (emphases mine).

With his thorough and incisive analysis the DT’s international business editor Ambrose Evans-Pritchard delivers this masterly in-depth article (click first image to read in full but note, not in new window):

These extracts are the more pertinent points relating to the EU (emphases mine):

‘…The world’s G2 economies are in a state of cold war. Europe is the chief collateral casualty. The eurozone will soon pay – or is already paying – the price of an economic model that is highly geared to the global trade cycle and depends on world consumption to make up for its structural inability to generate demand.  

‘Mario Draghi, the ECB’s president, says the eurozone’s manufacturing recession is getting “worse and worse”.  Germany’s industrial output fell a further 1.5pc in June and is down more than 5pc over the past year. “We would characterise today’s industrial production report as devastating,” said Carsten Brzeski [Wed 7th] from ING. There is no relief in the forward-looking indicators. The Ifo Institute’s gauge of production plans for the next three months has crashed to the lowest since the depths of the eurozone crisis in 2012.

‘European companies are caught in the Sino-US cross-fire…sales are now caught up in Chinese counter-tariffs. It is a key reason why Daimler has issued four profit warnings over the past year. The trade war is compounding the electrification shock that has thrown Europe’s car industry into seizure…’

Europe cannot handle so many shocks. It already has one foot in deflation. The ECB has lost monetary traction. Interest rates are minus 0.4pc and are close to the “reversal rate”, where further cuts become contractionary through a squeeze on bank margins…’

‘The ECB could in theory resort to helicopter money to fund government spending, but this would violate the Maastricht Treaty and run afoul of Germany’s constitutional court.

‘Euroland’s only defence is “new deal” fiscal stimulus – but this too is made impossible by the rigid legal and ideological structure. It meets the Stability Pact and the machinery of fiscal restraint.

‘Europe’s leaders cannot do much about Trump, China, and global deflation, but they can at least avert an unnecessary Brexit shock by changing the Withdrawal Agreement. This is not to say they will. Dominic Cummings is right to warn that the EU may opt for economic self-harm to achieve its religious objectives.

‘Yet criticism of the Barnier method is growing louder, especially in Germany. The Commission’s feet are at last being held to the fire. Gabriel Felbermayr, president of the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, says the strategy of forcing Britain to jump through divorce hoops before trade talks could begin was a serious error and has led to a dead-end.

“The EU must finally start to think strategically. This means giving up the dogma of the inviolable four freedoms and offering the UK, and likewise Switzerland, the maximum possible economic integration that is possible without political union,” he said.

‘..The EU’s Brexit goal until now has been to close ranks and uphold doctrinal purity.  It shoved aside those Europeans who called for a flexible Continental Partnership as a model for the EU’s future ties with the near abroad. The higher imperative was to make a point. But the economic dangers have now reached such a level that an additional – and easily avoidable – knife-fight with Borisian Britain risks blowing up the EU project entirely. At what point does the EU’s self-preservation reflex trump ideology?

Mr Varadkar could climb down from his nationalist tree and accept an all-Ireland farm deal, with a softish border for the remaining goods trade (tiny in volume), cleared by trusted trader schemes far from the front line.

‘Or he can bring about the no-deal he decries, and on the hardest of terms with 50,000 lost jobs or more, and be forced to erect physical border infrastructure by the EU in diplomatically horrible circumstances under threat of expulsion from the EU customs union. Moreover, as he says, the ordeal will go on, and on, and on. Should he change his mind and opt for compromise, Berlin, Paris, and other EU capitals will have the justification they need – and some now want – to reopen the Withdrawal Agreement.

‘If the Taoiseach denies them this graceful way out, then remember the Juncker dictum: “We have instruments of torture in the basement.”

Also note well Ambrose’s earlier eye-opener EU sharpens torture tools as Swiss showdown escalates into energy war, which includes this alarming example of its totalitarian nature:

‘..Brussels is preparing other tools of suffocation. There are threats to withdraw mutual recognition for exports of medical equipment.  This has the character of a creeping blockade. “In theory the EU could cut off access to almost anything,” said Pieter Cleppe from Open Europe in Brussels.

“It is a worrying precedent that a country can be cut off like this for purely-political motives when it has not violated its obligations,” he said.

‘Switzerland’s problems have been growing ever since the Brexit referendum. The country has become a victim of proxy diplomatic warfare, as made clear in leaked comments last month by the EU commissioner in charge of bilateral talks, Johannes Hahn…’

Maybe the EU is the fourth beast of Daniel’s dreadful vision, as recorded in chapter 7 of his Old Testament Book. Therefore, EU: prepare to meet thy decreed doom.

NI-Eire Prophecy Update #14: Irish Govt’s Brexit policy ‘is in tatters’, its bluff ‘being called’

On directly opposite sides of the world to one another, Phil View in New Zealand and me here in the UK, noticed yesterday morning an article published in Brexit Central by Dr Ray Bassett, author of politico-economic papers on Ireland, membership of the EU and Brexit, and UK think-tank Policy Exchange’s Senior Fellow on EU Affairs.

Having a lot to catch up online I ran off a hard-copy to read at leisure whilst munching lunch and then replied to his comment on NI-Eire Update #13,

“I note especially, Bassett’s inference that supports my repeated supposition that Eire will be better joining UK & NI outside EU.”

Ray’s credentials are impressive. Having served on ‘the Irish Government Talks Team during the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement negotiations (later) as Irish Joint Secretary to the British Irish Intergovernmental Conference in Belfast, 2001-2005 (then) headed up the Irish Consular Service and the Irish Abroad Unit (dealing with relations with the Irish Diaspora). Prior to retiring, he was Irish Ambassador to Canada, Jamaica and the Bahamas for six years.’

In reading Ray’s insights into the current Irish and British political situations with the EU, my attention was caught mid-way by:

‘…Meanwhile, our recent guest, the US President, is leaving nobody in any doubt about his support for a true Brexiteer in power in London. A future trade deal between a fully independent UK and the USA, coupled with trade wars between Washington and Brussels, is the stuff of nightmares for Ireland.

‘The London consultancy firm Primary Access, in analysing Irish investment abroad and Foreign Direct Investment in Ireland, stated that “Ireland has €93bn committed to the US, and €88bn to the UK in direct investment abroad; the comparable numbers for France and Germany are €4.4bn and €3.1bn respectively. The same pattern repeats in terms of inward direct investment. The US has €179bn, and the UK €58bn invested in Ireland; France has €15bn and Germany €5bn”.

‘As I have stated on many previous occasions, Ireland’s economic connections with mainland Europe are overwhelmingly those of the multinational (mainly American) companies located within the Republic.

‘If the international climate changes and these companies no longer feel comfortable in Ireland, we will be left with precious little else. In the meantime, our two closest economic and cultural partners, our neighbours to the west and east, as well as home to the majority of our diaspora, will have moved on without us…’  (emphases mine).

So you may readily understand why I was reminded of my personal opinion since 2012, as shared herein, that the Lord may want the WHOLE of the British Isles disconnected from the EU and to become fully independent, either as distinct entities of The United Kingdom & Northern Ireland and of the Republic of Ireland, or as a harmonious politico-economic entity like Britain and the Commonwealth of Nations.

You may recall the growing calls noted here and here for IREXIT and the establishing of a political party for that very purpose?

Therefore, you may wish to read in full Ray Bassett’s The Irish Government’s Brexit policy is in tatters and its bluff is now being called.

Fulfilled Prophecy #13 cont’d: investment analyst says EU’s collapse now “imminent”

Thank you to Jonathan Ely at Why Leave The EU? for alerting me to yet more news of signs indicative of the fulfillment of the prophetic word delivered on 17th Nov 2015 by Bible teacher David Noakes urging Britain to “Come out!” of the EU ahead of its Fall.

Some years ago international investment analyst and advisor Doug Casey predicted the fall of the EU and was asked by Nick Giambruno, “What’s changed since then?”

Well, what has changed,” replies Doug (emphases mine), “is that the entire situation has gotten much worse. The inevitable has now become the imminent.”

Read Nick’s concise interview in full to gain the full gist of Doug’s expert conclusion with his straightforward citing of financial facts:

“The European Union evolved, devolved actually, from basically a free trade pact among a few countries to a giant, dysfunctional, overreaching bureaucracy. Free trade is an excellent idea. However, you don’t need to legislate free trade; that’s almost a contradiction in terms. A free trade pact between different governments is unnecessary for free trade. An individual country interested in prosperity and freedom only needs to eliminate all import and export duties, and all import and export quotas. When a country has duties or quotas, it’s essentially putting itself under embargo, shooting its economy in the foot. Businesses should trade with whomever they want for their own advantage.

“But that wasn’t the way the Europeans did it. The Eurocrats, instead, created a treaty the size of a New York telephone book, regulating everything. This is the problem with the European Union. They say it is about free trade, but really it’s about somebody’s arbitrary idea of “fair trade,” which amounts to regulating everything. In addition to its disastrous economic consequences, it creates misunderstandings and confusion in the mind of the average person. Brussels has become another layer of bureaucracy on top of all the national layers and local layers for the average European to deal with…”

He supports his case with historical facts too, especially on how the many differences between various nations and desire for independence are now rocking the EU boat:

The EU was built upon a foundation of sand, doomed to failure from the very start. The idea was ill-fated because the Swedes and the Sicilians are as different from each other as the Poles and the Irish. There are linguistic, religious, and cultural differences, and big differences in the standard of living. Artificial political constructs never last. The EU is great for the “elites” in Brussels; not so much for the average citizen…

“There are movements in Corsica and a half dozen other departments in France. Even in Belgium, the home of the EU, the chances are excellent that Flanders will separate at some point (See Telegraph’s Belgian king meets Flemish far right for first time since 1930s amid fears of ‘Vlexit’ breakaway.) The chances are better in the future that the remaining countries in Europe are going to fall apart as opposed to being compressed together artificially…”

Asked “How does Brexit affect the future of the European Union?”, Doug replies:

Well, it’s the beginning of the end. The inevitable has now become the imminent. Britain has always been perhaps the most different culture of all of those in the European Union…”

And things ARE starting to shake – and there’s fighting talk! – because, as Ambrose Evans-Pritchard reports, Italy to activate its ‘parallel currency’ in defiant riposte to EU ultimatum:

The eurozone elites are looking straight down the barrel of an Italian economic revolt and a parallel currency. Subversive “minibot” treasury notes are back in play…

‘By some maniacal reflex the dying Commission of Jean-Claude Juncker has chosen this moment to draw up the first indictment letter of the revamped debt and deficits regime. Italy faces €3.5bn of fines for failure to tighten its belt. It has 48 hours to respond.

“We’re not Greece,” said Claudio Borghi, Lega chairman of Italy’s house budget committee. “We are net contributors to the EU budget. We have a trade surplus and primary budget surplus. We don’t need anything from anybody. And we are in better shape than France.”

Addendum to ‘Divine Designs’ by Neil Mackereth

In UK Situation Summary #3 Neil Mackereth refers to the ‘Brexit problem’ and needing to continue earnest intercession, and refers to “an earlier paper” when stating the failure of the EU project is a real possibility and could well follow the pattern of the downfall of the former Soviet Union. We’ve been following indicators of that failure in many postings under Fulfilled Prophecy #13, based upon the word David Noakes received on the Lord bringing about the EU’s downfall (full text at UK/EU in/out #4).

For the purposes of this blog I’m appending Neil’s ‘earlier paper’ (written 2017-18) to Divine Designs, and which reads as follows:

EU and USSR

In both the former USSR and in the EU today, the central governments, initially credited with creating economic well-being, have found that they could not cope with the growing economic challenges.

The flaw in the USSR model was an inflexible, all-encompassing central bureaucracy.

In the EU, it is an unwieldy central monetary policy which, in effect, imposes a single interest rate on all countries and leads to an unmanageable imbalance between strong and weak economies. Furthermore, those countries that have embraced the Euro have lost the ability to control their financial destinies: they can no longer act independently to manage their economic challenges in a way that is specific to their individual needs.

Brexit threatens to precipitate the break-up of the EU. It is propelling the various anti-EU (nationalistic) political movements to renewed vigour. Hard-line Eurosceptic parties are making strong gains – what they thought improbable (leaving the EU) they now see as a distinct possibility.

Whatever people may say; Brexit is both a calamity for the EU and the worst predicament it has ever faced. 2018 will be a pivotal year.

Spiritual Implications

Notwithstanding the clear vote for UK to leave, we are in an interregnum, a time between membership of the EU and our return to independent nationhood. We know where we are going but we are not there yet.

What has happened? God is in the process of removing Great Britain from an unholy alliance and breaking the web of inappropriate soul-ties that have been insidiously constructed over the last 40 years.

The signs of demonic influence in the EU are startlingly obvious, to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. The EU is on a course to disaster and God is rescuing the UK to be a tower of strength, a light in a dark place, in the time of need that is fast approaching.

I am convinced that this series of unexpected outcomes clearly indicates that God’s hand is on Great Britain.’

Many thanks my friend. Let us not forget David Hathaway’s quoting a Ukrainian pastor as saying it was much better for them living under the communists than with the EU!!!

UK Situation Summary #4: post-Brexit trade with the United States + ‘remaining deception’

In view of Neil Mackereth’s references in Summary #3 and my appended comments with link on President Trump’s exceptional negotiating skills vis-a-vis Prime Minister May’s incompetent, utterly humiliating discussions and abject obeisance to the EU, I’m publishing this copy of Sir William Jaffray’s letter to Woody Johnson, the United States’ Ambassador to the UK, for my readers’ information:

Click image for link to website

Subject: For attention of Mr. Woody Johnson.

Dear Ambassador,

We understand the European Council will convene later today to decide if the EU is prepared to grant an extension of time for Brexit beyond this Friday, 12th, the so-called No-Deal WTO option. It is by no means clear that all 27 Eurozone states will agree to it, or, if they do, what conditions will be imposed by Brussels.

My purpose in writing is to respectfully request you to issue a further press statement tomorrow to remind everyone here that our Prime Minister’s Withdrawal Agreement prevents the US from entering into a trade agreement with the U.K. That not only will this be a very valuable opportunity lost, but that our existing trade surplus with the US will suffer damage as the U.K. becomes embroiled in US/EU tariff disputes. Aside from existing 10% tariffs on steel and aluminium, a £9 bn tariff on Airbus is mooted, and tariffs on British products such as salmon and cheese. President Trump is also considering a 25% tariff on EU automotive industry exports, which will arguably backwash onto motor factories operating here. All told, the damage to the British economy without a clean break from the EU is significant.

A bald statement setting out potential costs to the U.K. economy might give even the more ardent europhiles in our Parliament pause for thought in their ideological pursuit of adherence to the EU.

The British people voted to Leave the EU unconditionally in 2016. They expect a clean break WTO departure on Friday 12th April. They do not want to see our relationship with our greatest ally, America, trashed by rogue parliamentarians, who have voted contrary to the pledges they made to their constituents in the 2017 General Election.

It is ironic beyond belief that after failing to heed Benjamin Franklin’s cry of “No taxation without representation “ our Parliament should be repeating the same mistake in its dealings with the EU. But our Parliament does NOT represent the People, and we wish to see the special relationship with your great country preserved, not discarded like old clothes.

Yours sincerely,

Sir William Jaffray.

Further to my asking in “The EU cat is out of the bag!” if May-Merkel discussions could be the “one more deception to be revealed”, Democracy 17.4 calls upon MPs and Peers to demand a copy of ‘secret’ transcripts pertaining to them for urgent debate in both Houses of Parliament. Their update reads:‘There can be little doubt that the EU has dictated the Brexit agenda throughout…Prime Minister May met Chancellor Merkel on Monday 9th July 2018 to agree a strategy to tie the UK to the EU by keeping as many EU laws and institutions as possible, the upshot being the Chequers agreement. Merkel and May agreed that the only realistic future for the UK was within the EU. With that in mind, May acquiesced for the Agreement to be drafted in Berlin and sent to the Cabinet Office, marked ‘Secret’. Merkel also ensured that the private meeting with May was recorded (probably without the PM’s knowledge) and sent transcripts to the EU and key German embassies.’

Thank you to Dave Chapman for helping me research the above issue wherein I discerned, a photo similar to the above, in these national leaders’ eyeballing one another that something is kept unsaid and private concerning their agreements.

NOW KEEP WATCH !!

LATEST NEWS, 16;38 pm

Angela Merkel has thrown Theresa May a lifeline after telling German MPs any Brexit extension should be “as short as possible” ahead of this evening’s crunch Brussels summit.

‘The German Chancellor has revived hopes that the Prime Minister could secure a shorter Brexit delay, but added that it should be “long enough to create calm, so we don’t have to meet every two weeks”.

‘Mrs May has requested that Article 50 be extended until June 30. 

‘However, there is a growing expectation in Westminster that EU leaders will back Donald Tusk’s ‘flextension’ plan for a year-long delay, with the option for the UK to leave earlier if Parliament ratifies the Brexit deal in good time. 

‘Meanwhile, Emmanuel Macron, the French President, has put forward an alternative plan which would see the UK relegated to an “intermediate member state” – shut out of major decisions and required to undergo a membership review every three months.

‘But in a boost for Mrs May, the German Chancellor told the Bundestag: “I will support – and see if there’s broad majority for – an extension of several months, but not far beyond that so that when the UK decides, an exit can proceed successfully…’

UK Situation Summary #3 – Neil Mackereth on Brexit ‘web’ and call to re-energise prayers

Readers are strongly encouraged to share far and wide this astute overview by Neil Mackereth published below. He’s not only well-versed in Biblical End-times but also one of my first contributors of many articles about the need for Britain to regain its sovereign independence by leaving the Europe’s expanding federation, or Fourth Reich.

A week before submitting his latest, Neil emails me on 2nd April: “Many thanks for the possible May/Merkel collusion bombshell. ‘Tis difficult in these calamitous times to be certain about anything, except our Lord. There is no doubt in my mind that the majority of our MP’s are continuing to pretend that they are working hard to fulfill the will of the people while in reality they are undermining all the principles of democracy…

“I am convinced that God’s hand is controlling the whole revealing process and, as always, His ways are not our ways. I do hope and pray that this is not a Joshua and Caleb moment where the 10 prophets of doom got their way and caused 40 years in the wilderness, rather than immediate entry to the promised land! On balance, I think that is unlikely and pray that we will achieve a clean break.

“Thought this (illustration is) a good summary of the present position:”

Since then, Neil has participated in local prayer meetings whilst drafting and circulating the following and notes “I feel an urgent need to press on with focused, sincere and informed prayer” Continue reading

10 years ago: Not many people know…

In my blog of 28th February I commemorated that date 10 years ago when I started emailing friends about topical events connected to End-times prophecies in the Bible. That post tells how my personal Bible metaphorically exploded in my face like a ‘time-bomb’, impressing upon me that “This is ALL about to be fulfilled!”

My next mailing got circulated on 1st April 2009 as two emails, copies of which maybe read below by enlarging their images (apologies for difficulty with legibility):

Main Points of Part 1:
  • G60 Summit and massive subrogation of American sovereignty in which the mighty Dollar is made subservient to the European Union.
  • more evidence for the move towards New World Order?
  • EU’s High Representative Solana threatens Israel’s PM Netanyahu!
